Don't let the photo fool you.
I'm a serious kind of fellow.
I was born in the middle of last century. There was a tragic mix-up at the hospital. Another baby boy, born at the same time as me, went home with my true parents, who were wealthy graziers with several thousands of acres located in the high country of southern NSW. I was sent home with a woman who was destined to become a single parent, and who suffered from undiagnosed clinical depression. She went on to become a struggling carer in a totally dysfunctional family.
To compensate for this setback I was later destined to meet and marry an extraordinary woman. Together we established the beginning of a fabulous extended family, which now comprises a son and a daughter, two children-in-law and four superb grandchildren.
I consider my part in this venture to be the single greatest accomplishment of my life.
The only other success of which I might boast, is the survival of four and a half decades as a would be educator, labouring within the NSW school system.
